Can't find the post in this thread, but am appreciative of the Tayda suggestion. Order arrived in 8 days, very well packed. Highly recommended.

Switches, with blue leds in them. Toggle, rocker and push button latching. And some with a faux carbon cover - the missile launcher ones. I am a sucker for a switch with a blue led in it. And carbon fiber. Also got some ON/OFF/ON temporary rocker switches.

For anyone who didn't know: Tayda's Facebook page has bi-monthly discount codes netting you 15% off. I didn't know about it for my recent order with them, but will be using it for my next order with them. Well worth checking their page.

Radio Shack seems to be having a "Closeout" sale of some of the less popular (?) Arduino/Sparkfun/etc boards.
I picked up a MEGA ADK ($20) and a motor shield ($5)
I am running out of excuses for not diving into the USB host world :-)

Questions:
1) does it have to hook up to an Android?
2) can it support a 4-port hub?
3) can you hang a quadram board on it?

I've placed more than a dozen orders with them now and never had a problem.  They quote fairly long shipping times but most of my shipments have come from Colorado and take no more than a week, max.  They are a good company to buy from.

Also, my own personal AED

Too many people in my circles have been dropping dead, and since an acquaintance pointed out that anyone can buy these now, it became untenable to perhaps not have one when it was needed.  Sigh.

Why post a marketing pic and not a pic of your actual unit?

I ordered a Rugged Circuits QuadRam board for $25 + ship, $28-something.
http://ruggedcircuits.com/html/quadram.html

That board is on deep discount and when they sell the last in stock, the price goes up.

I gave them a wish list item though. I want banks of memory-mapped I/O and the SRAM if it can work, that would be pin multipliers!

First set of PCBs from iTead.  Nothing exciting; just some DB9 rs232 breakout/analyzers:

Coin acceptor:



Unfortunately, you can put a larger coin in than can come out of the reject slot (a design bug, surely?).

See the plastic lip, barely visible, (circled) which prevents a coin that you inserted being retrieved. In this case, an Australian 50c piece, which people here are quite likely to use.

I think I know them. Didn't we get about 1000 spam messages about them? And you know what the annoying thing is? (well, one of them). I don't even live in the UK!

It's like getting a message from "your" bank telling you to log on and "reconfirm" your account details. Except you don't bank with them.
